Signs of Having a Gainesville Slab Leak
The following are symptoms that may occur with a slab leak:
Floors or floor coverings are always damp or wet
Water bill expenses increase
The sound of water can be heard while plumbing fixtures aren’t being used
Cracks in the foundation are apparent
Grass or vegetation around the foundation grow unevenly
Sections of the slab floor are warmer compared with others
Lowered water pressure
Smells emerging through the floor or walls
Slab leaks can occur in ones Buford property for many different reasons. For example, if the ground about ones house is mostly clay, it can be sensitive to differences in moisture. When water is mixed with the clay, the clay will expand and push its way upward, allowing for pressure to foundations from below. Over time then, the foundation slab and flooring can push upward creating plumbing pipes inside the concrete slab to break. Once this happens, water may flood the floor, causing damage to everything in its path. Sewer pipes can also be damaged by the slab leak, which is a much issue to deal with.
Slab leaks can occur from just general pipe wear and tear too. Homes that have copper pipes installed from when the home was built, are more prone to having excessive wear and tear on the copper and will need replaced eventually. Pinhole leaks are a common breakdown with copper plumbing.
